The Great Anchor of Kern was the source of so many stories, Kendall shuddered to think of someone trying to remember them all.
He knew of three: the anchor of the great battleship “Pouncer”, used to sever the enemy’s link to the sea; the counterweight on the massive clock that used to be at Port Joran; and the weapon of choice used by Boryln to fight off the resistance at the Battle of Manus.
All of these were such great honors; any would serve as reason to keep the anchor residing in its current place of stature at Pouncer-at-Arms castle.
The problem was none of these was the true reason for the existence of the anchor.
Kendall shook his head knowing the anchor would probably be melted down if it became well-known that it was part of a matched set: Jenie the giantess did so love her earrings.
